Exhibition "Hidden Talents" revealing the creative side of GFZ colleagues

----- Vernissage on 23 June 2023, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. -----

From June 23rd to the end of summer 2023, the library of the Albert Einstein Science Park on Potsdam's Telegrafenberg will be showing an exhibition of a special kind: "Hidden Talents – Our Creative Side" is the result of a project initiated in March 2021 as part of the GFZ-internal call in the Corona context "The things we do when we can't do the things we do".

With this idea, Mary Teresa Lavin-Zimmer and Dietlinde Friedrich created a platform for GFZ employees who discovered slumbering creativity during the months of pandemic-related restrictions and brought this to life in their very own individual artistic way.

And as it turned out, there are many creative people in the GFZ family! Among the numerous, wonderfully diverse submissions are photo contributions, paintings, illustrations, a book project and creative short films.

In the digital Art Gallery on the GFZ intranet site (see:, all contributions can already be seen (internal link, only available for GFZ employees).

Now, a number of the "Hidden Talents" are exhibiting their works in the library of the Albert Einstein Science Park on Potsdam's Telegrafenberg. All interested colleagues and friends are cordially invited to the vernissage on June 23rd, 2023. From 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., you can chat with the artists and other guests and be inspired by the works. So, we are delighted to invite you to pop by the library and enjoy the original works. Please note the opening hours of the library under
